of a legal battle. cnn's jim spellman is following the development from arapahoe county, colorado. tell us more on this. >> reporter: yeah. hello. last monday this notebook from james holmes arrived at the university of colorado there in the mail room. addressed to this psychiatrist he was seeing there at the school. so we know that the police came and they took that. now there's this gag order in effect. so law enforcement are not supposed to be talking to the media. but there was apparently what other media outlets called leaks that reported these were writings from holmes saying he was going to hurt people with drawings of people with guns and violent imagery, things like that. so the defense from holmes says, look, there's been the leaks. this is privileged material between a patient and a doctor. we want this material. the da's office says these leaks are inaccurate. they're not right. they don't have accurate sourcing. we don't want to give it to you. the judge said we're going to have a hearing about this monday. we'll decide. what it does tell us though is that, one, he was seeking
the overseas tour. jim acosta, cnn, london. >>. >>> all right. let's take to the streets of london and becky an dderson is parliament square, and beck di ki, people in london reacting to romney's comments or are they? and they are watching the torch make the final round around those historic sites. >> it is going to be said that they are more interested in where the torch is. it is passing through london's most iconic landmarks in the 69th day of a 70-day torch relay. the organizers here in london promise it is a truly national event, and that torch after it arrived from athens 69 days ago and police all over the place and real security here and apologies for that siren, and in the uk, it is something like 13 miles and millions of people have seen it winding through the country. people all over from parliament square here, and then it leaves here to buckingham palace where prince harry and the duke and the duchess of cambridge will be seeing it swapped by charity workers who are the torchbearers, and 173 of them. and so back to romney and the comments, i have done a fair ly unsophisticated s
dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's
's view? >> well, honestly, carol, mitt romney has done a couple of interviews. one with cnn's piers morgan and another on "the today show" on nbc and he is not really acknowledging publicly some of the criticism he's gotten here in london since those comments he made to nbc a couple of days ago about the city's readiness for the olympic games. you mentioned those headlines in the london newspapers. i have the one you just mentioned in "the sun," mitt the twit. i think this morning it's safe to say that the romney campaign probably has a new use for the olympic torch, and that is to burn some of these headlines, carol. but let me play for you some of what romney said on piers morgan last night, because piers asked romney about this criticism, and he didn't really seem to acknowledge it. here's what he had to say. >> you've been slightly criticized on knocking the british enthusiasm. are you feeling it now? >> well, i'm delighted to see the kind of support that has been around the torch, for instance. i watched last night on bbc an entire program about the torch being run across great

to get right to cnn's jim acosta. he's covering mitt romney today delivering some major messages of his own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston
then they fired two real bullets. an autopsy report obtained by cnn shows them entering the side of his arm, indicating chamberlain was not facing the officers or had turned away. >> so the story that the police put out that he was an ax wielding black man trying to hurt a police officer is what it is, a flat-out lie. >> reporter: chamberlain's lawyers acknowledge he did throw out a silver object. >> at that moment, a bolt cutter comes from the police officers and removes the object. so from that point forward, there's absolutely no evidence that at any time mr. chamberlain had a weapon in his hands. >> reporter: there is no way to know. the taser video suddenly cuts off before the shots are fired. so you must have thought it is ironic in sort of the terrible way that someone summoned to your father's door to help save his life, if he had been having some kind of heart emergency -- >> yes. >> reporter: -- ended up shooting him. >> yes. and they took his life. unnecessarily. they didn't have to. >> reporter: chamberlain's niece wants to know why police couldn't defuse the confrontation and w
